Application Guidelines

As an applicant, you need to suggest a concrete and feasible project, involving Jewish culture and taking place in Europe (in one or several places).

The proposed project could either be new, or be an already existing project that is currently under development towards its next phase.

We strongly suggest that you write out your answers to the questions using a word processing program such as Microsoft Word. Once you have completed the questions, copy and paste your answers into the appropriate fields in the form. This will ensure that your well-crafted responses will not be lost – you can not save and return to the form later.

Please submit all of your answers in full at one time. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

You should receive an email confirming the receipt of your application immediately after you have sent your application.
Questions regarding the application form can be sent to erik.gribbe[at]Paideia-eu.org

Application deadline is May 20th, 2017.

All applications will be screened and evaluated based on the following criteria:

Project qualities:

-                                  The project must respond to a specific need, be feasible and logical.
